Transformers : Beginnings produced by Joshua Foster --  control number 1341532.  This is NOT Transformers (Motion Picture : 2007).  In one of the legacy databases, someone had changed the bibliographic record to match the item in hand -- with no regard to what the OCLC record actually was for.  Bibliographic record now matches what is in OCLC.
Check your holdings on this bibliographic record, and if your item does not match, please move to an appropriate bib record for the item you have.  If you need help matching, please ask.
